Join us to celebrate Independent Bookstore Day!

Samantha Jacquest is the owner of Blue House Books, Kenosha's full-service independent bookstore in Downtown Kenosha. Sam loves sharing her love of books with the community and bringing in popular and local authors for events. When not at her shop, Sam enjoys traveling and spending time Downtown with her friends, family, and rescue dog Flash.

This is a day to celebrate everything that makes your indie bookstore special. We will have author appearances, gifts, raffles, and you guessed it – BOOKS!

We will be celebrating at Blue House Books (5915 6th Ave A) and the Ralph J Houghton Performance Center at Reuther High School (913 57th St).

Bestselling authors Jeneva Rose (The Perfect Marriage and You Shouldn’t Have Come Here), Mary Kubica (Local Woman Missing), Lindsay Currie (The Girl in White), and John Milas (The Militia House) will have a discussion on writing mystery and suspense novels, how they keep their readers hooked, and why they love independent bookstores. There will be an opportunity for the audience to ask questions and get their books signed by the authors! A ticket is required for the author discussion and details are available on our website.

Just a couple blocks away at Blue House Books, shoppers of all ages will receive a free gift with purchase while supplies last. As an added thank you to all our customers who shop with us on Indie Bookstore Day, every purchasing customer that is part of our free loyalty program will be entered into a raffle drawing to receive Blue House Bucks! We will also have goodies for giveaways and exclusive items available at independent bookstores that weekend only.

“This is our fifth year celebrating Independent Bookstore Day and the celebration just keeps getting bigger,” said Blue House Books Owner Samantha Jacquest. “We had to move to a larger offsite venue to accommodate for the enthusiastic crowd we get every year. This annual event is our chance to show the community what makes a local, independent bookstore so important, by providing access to talented, bestselling authors and putting on an amazing event for readers to share their love of books.”

About Blue House Books: Blue House Books is an independent bookstore operating in Downtown Kenosha since 2017. BHB is a full-service, locally-owned bookstore—carrying stock for all age groups and from all genres—with a focus on customer service and recommendations.
